Join the MSC Carbon Neutral Programme

For years, MSC has been investing heavily in low-carbon technology to help meet the targets to decarbonise shipping. Now MSC customers can share this vision and take responsibility for their emissions by joining the MSC Carbon Neutral Programme, created in partnership with South Pole.

The programme complements our strategic approach to sustainability and massive investment in reducing emissions and minimising the environmental impact of our fleet.




Through the partnership with South Pole, the world’s leading developer of emission reduction and renewable energy projects, MSC’s customers have access to premium climate action projects that improve lives, livelihoods and landscapes for communities around the world.

The MSC Carbon Neutral Programme supports projects that deliver measurable benefits aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Accelerate the Transition to a Carbon Neutral Supply Chain

The MSC Carbon Neutral Programme enables you to accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral supply chain, taking responsibility for your cargo’s environmental impact and compensating through an offsetting programme.

The emission reduction projects help fight climate change and bring wider sustainable development in local communities, such as poverty reduction, health improvements and access to clean water.

Huóshui Grouped Small Hydropower in China
Kariba Redd+ Forest Protection in Zimbabwe

Our team of experts help calculate the emissions generated by the volume of cargo moved.

Select one of the projects, part of the MSC Carbon Neutral Programme, to compensate the unavoidable emissions of the marine and inland transportation of your goods. You may decide to offset all cargo shipments processed for you by MSC or only a few.

South Pole will provide a “Verified Carbon Units Certificate of Retirement” delivered by VCS Registry and a climate action certificate attesting the amount of CO2 compensated by investing in this programme.
